Jasmine Agnew, 12, and 14-year-old Leah Dixon failed to return to their homes in Renfrewshire on Friday and were reported missing that night.

Police Scotland said they are growing increasingly concerned for the pair, who may be together and could have headed towards Falkirk.

Leah was last seen in Gauze Street, Paisley, on Friday at around 9.10am, while Jasmine left her home in Sandy Road, Renfrew, at around 3pm that day.

Jasmine, who is also known by the surname McGowan, is around 5ft 6ins tall with a slim build. She has brown wavy hair and blue eyes and was wearing a black puffer jacket and black skinny jeans.

Leah has a similar height and build and has long brown hair. She was wearing black leggings, a grey long-sleeved shirt, black Nike trainers, a black parka jacket with a fur-lined hood, and she was carrying a camouflage print bag.

Inspector Steven Espie said: “We are growing increasingly concerned for the girls given their age and that fact that no-one has heard from them.

“We are checking relevant CCTV footage for any additional information and we are appealing to anyone who may have seen the girls to contact us.

“We believe they may have got on a bus and travelled to Falkirk and we are undertaking inquiries to ascertain if that is the case.”
